> It disables the trashcan mechanism

Yes, it disables the trashcan in some cases. But only when using the trashcan mechanism would probably crash CPython anyway due to a double deallocation. So at the very least, PR 11841 improves things from "crashing whenever the trashcan is used" to "crashing on stack overflows".

Do you have a real example where PR 11841 actually makes things *worse*?

The recommended thing to do is that the subclass also implements the trashcan. See OrderedDict for an example: both the base class "dict" and the subclass "OrderedDict" use the trashcan.
